Sadly, it’s been a long time since Phoenix Nights ended after only two series – 17 years, in fact, with the series coming to a conclusion on September 12th 2002.

To celebrate the show, Peter Kay has been doing screenings of it around the UK, with the proceeds going to charity.

While the tour is yet to hit the North, there were screenings in London over the weekend, in which Peter teased a Phoenix Nights film.

The bad news is the Bolton comedian flat out confirmed there will be no more series of it, before getting fans excited with his comments about a film.

According to the Bolton News, the funnyman said in a pre-recorded video at the charity screening: “People always ask, ‘Will there be more Phoenix Nights?’ and I can now confirm there won’t — but I am thinking of a film.”

Peter went on to joke: “It should have been the twentieth anniversary but I got the dates wrong. I arranged it, booked the venue, sorted the posters and then realised, I don’t think it’s been 20 years.”

These screenings are the first time the series has ever been shown on the big screen, and the Manchester event will take place at the O2 Apollo in February, with multiple screenings over the weekend of the 7th-8th.

While this is sold out, there is also an event at Blackpool Opera House on Saturday February 29th – with a few resale tickets still going.

The event is screening both series of the show, with all profits going to Cancer Research UK.

With much anticipation, White Lines came to Netflix a few weeks ago featuring a big dose of sun, sea and Mancunian charm.

If you’ve watched it, chances are it’s got you dreaming about stepping off the plane in Ibiza. Not that we all need much more convincing to be day dreaming about a holiday right now.

The 10-part thriller was shot in both Greater Manchester and Spain, and features the iconic red brick houses and warehouse-chic city crossed with golden sands and glorious blue seas of Spain.

Many of the Manchester scenes, you might be surprised to find out, were actually filmed in Bolton, while a lot of the Ibiza scenes were shot in Mallorca.  

Netflix

Mayfield Depot, Manchester

Like Manchester, one of the biggest parts of White Lines is music. There’s a whole host of top tracks throughout, including those by Primal Scream, Sub Sub and the Happy Mondays.

There’s a whole scene shot in Mayfield Depot for an illegal party. It’s now a massive gig space for the city. 

Netflix

Eustace Street, Bolton

This is the Manchester street where the young boys are chatting before their court appearance in episode two. But it’s actually a street in Bolton. 

Netflix

Woodgate Street, Bolton

This street depicts the exterior to Clint’s house throughout the whole series, again this is located in Bolton just around the corner from the street above.

Despite being set in Ibiza, episode one involves finding Axel’s body. This is found in the desert after a freak rain storm shifts the sand and exposes his hand. 

Netflix

Cala D’or, Mallorca

One of the shows most stunning properties is actually in Cala D’or a small town on the east coast of Mallorca. The location is used throughout the series but is mostly seen in episode one. 

Netflix

Camp de Mar, Mallorca

There’s a couple of scenes that were actually filmed in Mallorca, including the one where Marcus is seen driving to the beach and walking over a bridge to a bar. The bar is a real place in Camp de Mar.

Fans of the mystery-thriller The Sinner have waited almost a year since the last series, but Netflix has finally confirmed the date of the latest offering. 

The third installment of the hit show will be coming to screens from June 19th in the UK, a lot sooner than fans had first thought. 

The show is executive produced by Jessica Biel and follows the story of Detective Harry Ambrose played by Bill Pullman. 

Ambrose investigates a routine traffic incident in New York but quickly realises nothing is as it seems, and there is something much more serious and sinister about the case. 

The new series features Matt Bomer who fans might recognise from American Horror Story, playing Jamie Burns, an unsuspecting resident of Dorchester whose dark past comes to life in the investigation.

The new series promises to be the most shocking yet. The trailers have been released showing Jamie Burns in the aftermath of the crash, tormented by his past life.

An emotional clip of the Gogglebox stars discussing meeting in the afterlife has now resurfaced.

June passed away at the age of 82 last week, at home with her family by her side, after suffering a short illness.   

June and Leon were part of the original Gogglebox cast and definitely a favourite across the country, with many people loving watching their relationship.

In the unearthed clip, the couple discussed meeting in the afterlife while watching the end of the film Gladiator.

A teary-eye Leon said: ‘There they are. His son and wife. I reckon he’s died and he’s joining them. I like to think that’s true, you know.”

June replied: “Yeah, well you do don’t you. Especially when you get to our age,” wiping tears from her eyes.

“I think so, I believe it. I’d join you, you see. Always, June”, Leon replied, before adding, “Sad isn’t it”.
